This green leafhopper was been point out primary as a devastator of cotton in Egypt an Soudan.
After rolling-up of sheets leaves, these dry out completely, with transmission of viruses due to the injection by the green leafhopper of toxic salivas during the suction.
The distribution of the larval and grown-up stages in 2015 was characterized by four very significant peaks on three varieties of vine (cinsaut, grenache and carignan) what corresponds certainly to four generations of green leafhopper.
Rice cultivars, Palisithari 601 and ARC 11554 recorded (1 score) for both tungro and as well as green leafhoppers and rice genotypes Tjempo Kijik, Utri Merah an Utri Rajapan recorded (1 score) for tungro resistance and recorded (7 Score) total susceptibility to the leafhoppers.
Three rice genotypes showing moderately resistant reaction obtained from IRRI (IR73546-20-2-2-2, IR77298-5-6 and IR 81336-39-33-3) expressed resistant reaction with (score 3) with varied levels of resistance to the green leafhoppers. Noticeable observations were made on the accession IR 77298-5-6, where in it has expressed good level of resistance to tungro but completely destroyed by the GLH.
It was also observed that three moderately resistant rice genotypes obtained from IRRI (IR73546-20-2-2-2, IR77298-5-6 and IR 81336-39-3-3-3) expressed resistant reaction with (score 3) with varied levels of resistance to the green leafhoppers. The accession IR 77298-5-6 expressed good level of resistance to tungro but completely destroyed by the GLH.
In fact, the tea green leafhopper has been provided with several scientific names including Empoasca vitis (Goethe), Jacobiasca formosana (Paoli) and Empoasca onukii Matsuda.
Today, this bug-bitten tea is being replicated in several regions within Asia, with farmers actively encouraging a degree of plant damage from the tea green leafhopper. There are two theories of where the flavour comes from.
The research between the relationship of the tea green leafhopper and the tea plant is a dynamic one.
